Dakota College at Bottineau (DCB) is an affiliate campus of Minot State University (MSU). As such, it is administratively attached to its parent institution. The University President oversees operations at both sites and is located in Minot, ND. The Chief Executive Officer at DCB is the Campus Dean.
Collaboratively, DCB and MSU offer seven one and two-year Career and Technical Programs in Minot. Facilities, technology, and faculty are shared so that these majors can be extended to the Minot region. In addition, DCB has articulation agreements with MSU that enable students to make a seamless transition between the two schools, if they choose to earn a Bachelorís degree from MSU.
Dakota College and Minot State have been cooperating since 1996 to bring quality education programming to north central North Dakota. Both higher learning institutions belong to the eleven member North Dakota University System.
